Ruben Loftus-Cheek & Chelsea
There are just a couple of days remaining in the summer transfer window in Europe.
Could a European club sign Ruben Loftus-Cheek from Chelsea before September 1st?
The subject of Ruben Loftus-Cheek’s ongoing career at Chelsea has been thrown into doubt by the Sun on Wednesday.
The tabloid are claiming that Loftus-Cheek is furious with his current situation at Stamford Bridge.
So far this season, Loftus-Cheek has only featured in 22 minutes of action.
Schalke & Monaco
The S*n announce that both Schalke and Monaco are trying to sign Loftus-Cheek on loan.
However Chelsea are refusing to allow the England international to leave the club this summer. Readers are told:
Ruben Loftus-Cheek is fuming Chelsea have rejected loan offers from Monaco and Schalke.
Both requests from Europe have been knocked back by the Blues – who have told Loftus-Cheek he is going nowhere.
Chelsea are well-stocked with midfield options.
They’ve brought Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic, while the likes of Danny Drinkwater, Ross Barkley and Cesc Fabregas all remain at the club.
And, after Chelsea have won their opening three matches of the season, it’s hard to see Maurizio Sarri drafting Loftus-Cheek into his first team anytime soon.
Chelsea vs Bournemouth
Chelsea will be hoping for another three points on Saturday when Bournemouth visit Stamford Bridge.
Bournemouth have been a surprise package at the start of the new season. The Cherries remain unbeaten with two wins and a draw on the board.
Last weekend Bournemouth rallied from 2-down to draw 2-2 with Everton.
Referee Lee Mason will take charge of the game at Stamford Bridge this weekend.
